OK, here's a step by step:

Open Konsole (K Menu>Utilites)
Type (without the quotes) "sudo apt-get install firefox"
Hit enter
Type in password and hit Enter
Watch Firefox install

Also, you may consider installing KPackage (sudo apt-get install
kpackage).  Then, you'll be able to doubleclick on a .deb and it will
open and let you install it.
